Summary

Summary:

"The newest addition to the ever-popular, internationally beloved series finds Precious Ramotswe and her friends up to their necks in mysterious trouble. Mma Ramotswe knows she is very lucky indeed. She has a loving family, good friends, and a thriving business doing what she enjoys most: helping people. But the latest mystery she is called upon to solve is distinctly trickier than it initially appears, and, of course, there's plenty to handle in her personal life between Charlie and his new bride and Mma Makutsi and her talking shoes. In the end, Mma Ramotswe's patience and common sense will win out, and, without a doubt, all will be the better for it"-- Provided by publisher
Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni attends a course hosted by the local chamber of commerce, but rather than feeling energized he comes back in low spirits, unsure how to grow the already venerable and successful Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors. An old friend from school approaches him about a new business venture, but it turns out he will need to mortgage his property in order to pursue this endeavor. In a new case for Mma Ramotswe, a concerned son learns that his aging father's nurse now stands to inherit the family home. As Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi investigate, they must rely on their tact, humor, and goodwill to ensure that all involved find the happiness that they deserve. -- adapted from jacket
